Understandthereforethis day, that the LORD thy God is he whichgoethoverbeforethee; as a consumingfire he shalldestroythem, and he shallbringthemdownbefore thy face: so shaltthoudrivethem out, and destroythemquickly, as the LORDhathsaiduntothee.
Speak not thou in thineheart, afterthat the LORD thy God hathcastthem out frombeforethee, saying, For my righteousness the LORDhathbrought me in to possessthisland: but for the wickedness of thesenations the LORDdothdrivethem out frombeforethee.
Not for thy righteousness, or for the uprightness of thineheart, dostthou go to possesstheirland: but for the wickedness of thesenations the LORD thy God dothdrivethem out frombeforethee, and that he may perform the wordwhich the LORDswareunto thy fathers, Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.
Remember, and forget not, how thouprovokedst the LORD thy God to wrath in the wilderness: from the day thatthoudidstdepart out of the land of Egypt, until ye cameuntothisplace, ye havebeenrebelliousagainst the LORD.
When I was gone up into the mount to receive the tables of stone, even the tables of the covenantwhich the LORDmadewith you, then I abode in the mountfortydays and fortynights, I neither did eat bread nor drinkwater:
And the LORDdeliveredunto me two tables of stonewrittenwith the finger of God; and on them was writtenaccording to all the words, which the LORDspakewith you in the mount out of the midst of the fire in the day of the assembly.
And the LORDsaidunto me, Arise, get theedownquicklyfromhence; for thy peoplewhichthouhastbroughtforth out of Egypthavecorruptedthemselves; they are quicklyturnedaside out of the way which I commandedthem; theyhavemadethem a moltenimage.
And I felldownbefore the LORD, as at the first, fortydays and fortynights: I did neither eat bread, nor drinkwater, because of all yoursinswhich ye sinned, in doingwickedly in the sight of the LORD, to provoke him to anger.
And I tookyour sin, the calfwhich ye had made, and burnt it withfire, and stamped it, and ground it verysmall, evenuntil it was as small as dust: and I cast the dustthereofinto the brookthatdescended out of the mount.
Likewisewhen the LORDsent you fromKadeshbarnea, saying, Go up and possess the landwhich I havegiven you; then ye rebelledagainst the commandment of the LORDyour God, and ye believed him not, nor hearkened to his voice.
Lest the landwhencethoubroughtest us out say, Because the LORD was not able to bringtheminto the landwhich he promisedthem, and because he hatedthem, he hathbroughtthem out to slaythem in the wilderness.
